the bad karma bike...
I could go into this at great length
but that does not seem necessary
as tempting as it may be for someone to buy a bicycle in the park
this is a serious NO-NO!
it is not a deal!
buying a stolen bicycle perpetuates a vicious cycle
if no one buys the stolen bike
there is no market for the stolen bike
thus people will steal less bicycles
the same goes for hot components
I do not want anyone messing with my stuff
why should I contribute to the actions that mess with other people's stuff
buying a stolen bicycle is just a hair away from stealing the bicycle yourself
in the eyes of the law (or the owner of the stolen goods) possession of the stolen goods is a crime punishable by law
my soapbox for the morning
I will step down now
